Question unsteady idle and sputtering acceleration

I have a '96 Olds Cutlas Supreme V6 that just had some A/C and oil leak work completed. Now I have two new problems:

1. the idle is unsteady when first starting.
2. the car sputters when accelerating (most noticable when engine is cold).

Not sure if it's related but when I first got the car back from the shop I noticed a horrible odor when the car was running. I brought the car back to the shop and it turned out to be a fuel leak on top of the engine.

What could be causing these two problems?

I don't see the A/C work as being related, but some "oil leak work" sure might be.. What oil leak did they fix for you? For some reason I'm thinking intake gasket..?
